Stephan Lewies and Frans Steyn will undergo surgery that will rule them out for lengthy periods.
Lewies has ruptured his patella tendon, while Steyn has torn his pectoral muscle.
'Unfortunately it looks like they're both going to be out with some long-term injuries,' said Sharks director of rugby Gary Gold. 'It looks like both will need surgery so that is very disappointing for us.'
